About the Author

Sir Basil Liddell Hart (1895-1970) was the greatest military thinker of the twentieth century, whose ideas revolutionized the art of war. A student at Cambridge University at the outbreak of World War I, he joined the army and rose to the rank of captain. He retired from the army in 1927 to devote his time to writing. He was military correspondent for the Daily Telegraph and adviser on defense to The London Times, and military editor of the Encyclopedia Britannica. He lectured at Cambridge and served as personal adviser to War Minister Leslie Hore-Belisha in the reorganization of the British Army in the run-up to World War II. He was the author of more than thirty books and had an enormous influence on military thinking about mechanized warfare.
